Faculty of Law

For a quarter of a century, HSE University’s Faculty of Law has managed to become one of the leading centres of legal education and studies in Russia and worldwide. This is possible thanks to its unique combination of a fundamental approach to teaching legal subjects and the University’s own best educational practices.

Since 2012, the Faculty has provided educational services according to its own standards, in turn, ensuring more effective development of the most important competencies for today’s legal experts in comparison with Russian federal state educational standards.

The Faculty’s staff includes professors, honorary experts, authoritative lawyers and leading practitioners.
